It's that time again for AHS members to vote for the Popularity Poll. Ballots are available online at the AHS site. Go to the side menu to Popularity poll site and click ballot beside it. It will ask your region and the ballot comes up for that region. Don't forget that you can vote for daylilies not on the ballot also. There are write-in blanks for that. You can still send in mail in ballots from your Regional journals. Please vote even if it is for just one daylily. Deadline to vote is on September 1st.

Hello Spring. What a difference a year makes! The daylily foliage is officially up but much more back to normal than the last 2 years. I hope this is a sign of a more normal weather pattern for us..whatever that is. Looking back on last years notes I see that the first bloom last year was BALI WATERCOLOR the 3rd week of May. Who will it be this year?
The first meeting of the year will beTuesday evening, April 2nd. The meeting will be held at our new location, The Church of Christ, 1646 N. 9th Street in Salina. Our social hour begins at 6:30 pm.
The Wichita Daylily Club is hosting hybridizer Paul Owen on Monday, April 1, 7:30pm, at Botanica. There will also be a plant auction. Paul Owen's Slightly Different Nursery is located in North Carolina. For those of you who aren't familiar with his daylilies, he has some gorgeous ones! Thanks Faye!
